| Le Kar Hum Deewana Dil: An amateurish & pointless take on a Love….
Arif Ali brother of Imtiaz Ali debuts in this movie as a director and introduces the new pair of Armaan Jain (Grandson of Raj Kapoor ) and Deeksha Seth (Miss India Finalist)…..

Arif who also is the writer of the movie is heavily influenced by his Brother Imtiaz Ali's movies like "Socha Na Tha", "Jab We Met" and even his recent "Highway". So as you guessed it right the story is of a young couple Dinesh a.k.a Dinoo (Armaan Jain) and Karishma (Deeksha Seth) who are utterly confused whether they are in love or are just good friends , but they decide to elope as Karishma is forced to marry a groom from a Shetty family. They get married and travel half way through India from Goa to Nagpur to Raipur to the forest of Bastar after which they realize that they are not compatible and call it quits and return home. They apply for divorce so the remaining plot surrounds whether they separate or they come together.

The issue of the screenplay written by Arif Ali himself first is the length of 140 mins which was not required for a wafer thin plot, secondly the screenplay which just does not go anywhere. Till the end the lead pair looks confused and not sure and so does the audience. After the movie is over you feel confused whether the couple were really in love. The first half when they elope has some moments but in the second half it drags unnecessarily. Even when they elope there was no requirement of putting the Naxalite angle, other than for a song sequence which looks straight out of the 80's & 90's movie wherein there used to be a song in the villain's den. Arif wanted to target this movie for the youth but unfortunately it does not have any elements which may lure the youth.

The lead pair of Armaan Jain and Deeksha Seth does not impress at all, especially Armaan who has a heavy hangover of his Uncle Randhir Kapoor style of acting and his dialogue delivery & Diction needs to be polished. Deeksha Seth looks completely confused throughout the movie and looks like "Alice in Wonderland" not knowing what is happening. The rest of the ensemble cast of Kumud Mishra, Sudeep Sahir, Anita Kulkarni, Rohini Hattangadi, Varun Badola, Gautami Kapoor try to put some sense through their performances but all in vain as the writing is so weak that they could not salvage.

Arif Ali's direction does not create any impact as his writing; he just fails to get the lead pair to act. Arif has concentrated more on the portraying the cool quotient like the lingo and the look of the movie but fails miserably to set the love story properly the first requisite in a love story, only if the look could make a movie work….

Well there are only two highlights of the movie which shines in this otherwise chaos is the cinematography by Laxman Utekar which captures right from the cool city life of Mumbai to the forests of Chattisgarh extremely well and beautifully. Second highlight is the music by A R Rahman, especially the peppy "Khalifa" and the ever so romantic "Allahada" which is written beautifully by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

"Le Kar Hum Deewana Dil" is pointless and does not make any sense as it misses the soul completely.
